Phytopathologia Mediterranea

Phytopathologia Mediterranea is an international journal edited by the Mediterranean Phytopathological Union. The journal’s mission is the promotion of plant health for Mediterranean crops, climate and regions, safe food production, and the transfer of new knowledge on plant diseases and their sustainable management.

The journal deals with all areas of plant pathology, including etiology, epidemiology, disease control, biochemical and physiological aspects, and utilization of molecular technologies. All types of plant pathogens are covered, including fungi, oomycetes, nematodes, protozoa, bacteria, phytoplasmas, viruses, and viroids. The journal also gives a special attention to research on mycotoxins, biological and integrated management of plant diseases, and the use of natural substances in disease and weed control. The journal focuses on pathology of Mediterranean crops grown throughout the world.

The Editorial Board of Phytopathologia Mediterranea has recently been reorganised, under two Editors-in-Chief and with an increased number of editors.

These include scientists from 16 countries representing highly respected researchers with a broad range of expertise.The journal includes 3 issues per year in which Review papers, original Research papers and Short notes are published. New sections have been added as New or unusual disease reports, News and prospects, Commentary, Current topics, News and opinions, and Letters to the Editor. The expanded scope, along with the regular contributions of researchers, will enhance achievement of the Journal's goal of being an active communication and discussion forum on all aspects of plant pathology, especially relating to Mediterranean plants, but also more broadly across all facets of our science discipline. The journal also accepts Book reviews of interest for Mediterranean phytopathologists. Papers are published in English.
